reform. president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. harry reid has announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going to try to do. i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assau
be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at
it with so many amendments, democratic leader harry reid feared it wouldn't pass. >> i'm disappointed in a number of my democrats. and a number of republicans. >> reporter: now, senators will work through the weekend, in hopes of sending a budget to the house early next week. just in time for congress to make its two-week spring break. >> come monday, we need to move this bill. >> reporter: lawmakers are debating next year's budget. president obama wants a big deal that addresses the long-term deficit. he is hoping sitdowns put lawmakers in a better mood to compromise. >> i think we've had good conversations. but ultimately, it's a matter of the house and the senate, both caucuses, getting together and everybody being willing to compromise. >> reporter: republicans have proposed signatu proposed significant cuts to -- they put responsibility back on the president. >> his job is to deliver the members of his party. >> reporter: now, lawmakers appear no closer to a deal. but more optimistic about compromise. president obama is traveling to illinois. he'll be focusing on another of his b
through harry reid. >> this is what liberals want to know is not when hair arery reid is going to move because harry reid is not a profiles in courage leadership kind of guy. he is a will of his caucus kind of guy. he stepped out in front very few times. generally what he does is reflect the general consensus of his caucus. if he is going to move and take a chance it has to be because the president is pushing him, pushing him, pushing him and we heard from senator feinstein last week the president they believe that nothing is going to happen unless he gets out in front and leads on this. remember, this is one of the three gs for liberals in the second obama term. gay marriage. global warming and guns. and these are the three biggest issues for the left and if the president looks like he is dragging his feet on this they will get cranky and then to take us back to senator king's point they will be less inclined to do something that they have already shown very little in krieneation to do which is to address the long-term drivers of the debt meddeficit particularly did i. >> shannon: sen
: okay. >> caller: you just talked about harry reid agreeing to reform filibustering, and i'm wondering how harry reid feeling about that handshake that he gave him over that. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. >> caller: but what i really called about is can you and all of the other people that do what you do stop talking about these republican crises and start getting into people's heads that if we don't attack these republicans for not doing it -- it is them shutting up that would stop these crazies. >> stephanie: all right. we just mentioned it. there you go. with a bell. >> yes. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: and mitch mcconnell is a bag of pus. okay. jim in chicago. hello, jim. >> caller: yeah hi stephanie. love your show. you guys crack me up. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: for sure. the democrats have to get with it and create a policy that's going to take -- bring the voters to the polls because the republicans answer is tax breaks. i.e. -- it has all been we're going to cut your taxes, where the democrats have to come one up on that so they can get t
on zero solutions is not the way to get there. >> very quickly, harry reid is endorsed by the nra, wayne lapierre campaigned on behalf of harry reid. it's an organization for second amendment advocates. and you can find them, actually, on the other side of the aisle with very explicit nra support. again, we need to get away -- >> and the majority of nra members also support sensible gun legislation. >> it certainly sparks enthusiastic conversation on both sides. maria and amy, thanks again, great to talk to you again both always. >>> i do want to share a light moment from cpac's first day, it was back and forth. the issue of hillary clinton came up and begala, friend of the clintons was asked if she was going to run in 2016. listen to the response. >> i have no idea if she will. i think she's actually going to first, like live a life, write her book, reacquaint herself with the real world having been traveling the world, but i think this is really -- no, not get a facelift, she's not a republican society lady, she's a real woman. >> oh, that apparently did not end the clinton attacks. ye
lack of majority in the senate which is led by the philosopher harry reid. but they maintained by a large strengthen the house of representatives, losing only about eight seats. and a position of state legislatures were very strong. that position that they built up in 2010, they lost legislatures in maine and minnesota, but by and large can't legislatures that they one in 2010, and had the kind of advantage that they haven't had in state legislatures since the 1920s. so we are 25 states that have governors in both houses of legislature, controlled by republicans. they are not just small states. and 53% of the nation's population versus -- i believe it is 13 states with democratic governors or legislatures, 21% of the nation's population. so let me just leave you with a final number out of the exit poll. the electorate that reelected obama when asked whether government should do more to solve problems or whether government is doing to me things better left to businesses and individuals, 52% government is doing too many things. 43% government should do more. ..

, and not considering they would be a democrat and working with harry reid instead of mitch mcconnell -- >> wait, wait, wait. you forgetting about alvin green. >> oh, yes. [ laughter ] >> there are a lot of people who have forgotten about him. he ran for the state house after that and just got trounced. >> did he really? >> yeah. >> bill: oh, he did. >> despite all of the notoriety and at attention he got facing jim demint that was not one of the most successful political careers. >> bill: lindsey graham has become so far right, you know, you can't get to the right of him anymore, because he is afraid of his own shadow, but has anybody filed against him or is he just making it up? >> no. no. and of course filing won't open until march of next year and nobody has really even emerged, though there are tea party forces and libertarian forces here in the republican party who are small but vocal and pretty organized and they would love to get a credible candidate up against him. in fact they would love to change the rules of the primary so it's done at a convention than a primary itself
agree with my colleague senator harry reid and qusseir to describe the state of our country and the state of our national defense and the challenges we face around the world right now. it's a very difficult time and a dangerous time around the world. thatf the first challenges we face and one of the greatest national security threats that march of irane toward obtaining a nuclear weapon. i find myself, in reviewing senator heard chuck hagel's record and what he said when he appeared before us in a very lengthy hearing before the committee, to be very much at odds with him on this issue and also on some of his prior positions at odds with members of both sides of the aisle. host: merideth shiner, what about her role in the nomination of chuck hagel? you see her out front on the issue and on what happens in benghazi, the attacks on the embassy? guest: this is something you saw -- i don't using as know what to college. they have been very vocal on the issue, whether it was benghazi or the nomination of chuck hagel, which eventually passed, but not without some consternation. it
